Zorya’s head coach Patrick van Leeuwen answered journalists’ questions after the first match with the Romanian club Universitatea (1:0) in the 3rd round of the UEFA Conference League qualification.

Luhansk mentor notedthat in general he is satisfied with the result, but Zorya is capable of scoring more, Ukrinform reports.

“The chances were to score more than one goal. Compared to last season, we now have a completely different lineup. I am pleased with the mood of the team and the results it shows. In the match against Universitat, the task was to control the game for the entire 90 minutes, both in defense and in attack. The team has not played in official matches for a long time, so this result of the match more than satisfies us. In a word, even one goal and a minimal victory is already a positive result, but we know that we are capable of scoring more opponents,” said van Leeuwen.

The second leg will take place in Romania on 11 August.
